I have a 30 gallon tank and and have had red capped orandas for almost a year now. Right now, I have 4 that are the size of a tennis ball and they are just delightful to watch. Those who share this fish hobby must get a red capped oranda to experience the serenity of the breed.

I picked up two red cap orandas. I am so excited to see the new arrival in my hexangonal tank in the living room. They are smooth and gracious fish. We sat for hours observing the newcomers.

i have two redcap orandas in a 40 gallon tank. I handfeed them with a mixture of live bloodworms, mashed peas, flakes, and tubiflex worms. they are so alert and lively, i love them to bits. one of my redcaps is 4 months old and the other is 9 months old with a well developed hood that most redcaps take 2 years to achieve. if you feed your fish an excellent varied diet that include lots of live food, then your fish will blossom and grow into magical creatures.

I just got 3 saturday and when i came from work today one of them had died. I am just heart broken. Who would think you could get so attached to a fish?

We bought 2 orandas today, a red cap and a red and white oranda pom pom. Both are exceptionally beautiful fish. We have them in a hexangonal tank in our computer room as we already have an aquarium in the lounge. They are so soothing to watch, we would sit there all day if we could.

Some of my fondest fishkeeping memories came from my 5 1/2 year old Satine, a Red Cap Oranda with long serene fins. My only remark other than showers of flattery are that give them plenty of swimming space, and I myself found that each fish did best with 10 gallons per individual.
